Fish Dish: Chili-Lime Halibut
I was excited to find that my local market has started stocking Full Circle all natural, wild caught, US fish in its freezer section. I live on the Gulf Coast and can get fresh Gulf seafood but these are not indigenous fishcicles. So I have decided to share this culinary voyage with you. I won’t be providing recipes per se but instructions on how I fixed each Fish Dish.
Fish Dish: chili-lime halibut with chipotle brown rice pilaf.
I seasoned the halibut steaks with salt, pepper and chili powder. I seared them in an oiled medium high sauté pan for about four minutes on each side, basting with fresh squeezed lime juice after the turn. Once done I removed them to a plate.
For the pilaf I added half a can of chipotle white corn (with some juice) to the sauté pan along with a can of green chilies making sure to scrape up the fond in the bottom of the pan. I then added 4 ounces of pre-cooked brown rice and tossed it in the pan until heated through and well mixed. I squeezed a little more lime juice over both the pilaf and the halibut before serving.
